the xz is a rubbish phone. seriously, and I love and adore Sony, I still believe the Z2 and 3 were the best phones of their time. (I still have my Z2)
the xz jitters and lags even without any stamina mode, the edges of the photos taken are soft and blurry. battery life is horrible like iphones (which is a brand I will never, ever buy), by 5 pm you'll be rushing for your charger.
There are many options if the next Sony in Septermber does not impress, Oneplus, Huawei, and the returning giant Nokia. but definitely no Apple and no Lagsung for me, and unfortunately Sony will join them soon to my sadness.
Here is my battery review for this phone.
you'll be lucky if you get 10 hrs of moderately heavy use. and still with lighter use, you'll need to charge it everyday. it has battery drain issues, I lose around 10 percent for 8hrs so in 24 hrs expect to lose around 20%, that leaves you with 80 to use and battery consumption is high
On average you will get around 3hrs of onscreen time on data and 4.5 hrs on wifi.
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2017Android nougat can be the last update for Z5. But for XZ Premium it will get android O as well.That's the thing. The Z5 may have Nougat 7.0 as its last update. The updates that are coming in are probably just maintenance and security updates but NOT software and performance updates. Agree?

The problem with Sony i see is they release new phones every 9 months and then then older flagship gets put back in the queue in terms of importance and priority on updates. If Sony release every year cycle and a system like Samsung like low-end (J-series), mid-range (A-series) and flagship (S-series) then they don't have too much of a headache pumping out the latest hardware and then updates would stop after a year or so.

The Z5 may be stuck to Nougat 7.0 and the XZ to 7.1.1 forever.

You said that article is one year old and things changed. Yes things changed - Sony made the fastest phone.

Sony phones are somewhat unstable and laggy when released. But after some updates Sony phones will shine and beat all others. For example my Z3 is butter smooth now. More smooth than it was. I agree it will overheat but not much. And yes motorola is smooth too.

But the argument would be that the report is a year old and many things would have happened then. Sony may have the most stable Android OS (a near-stock Android similar to other OEMs such as Motorola, Nokia, etc.) but the biggest problems for them this year is still the overheating, unoptimised software (which is evident by some issues on the app loading/multitasking and the aforementioned overheating) and battery life. I said it here before of my experience. When I had the Galaxy A5 2016 and the Huawei P8 Lite 2017 phones if you noticed both have a skinned version of Android and have inserted bloatware on the UX/UI. Ironies of ironies despite having a skinned Android the two phone lasted more than a day with no charging midday even with use of GPS (Google Maps), Sync on, minimal games but constantly checking emails, social media, news and moderate use of Youtube via 4G and above average use of YT via wifi from 6pm. So, If these example doesn't tell you anything about these devices then I don't know what will. I have done almost all battery saving tips & tricks under the sun (apart from rooting) and I still found Xperia devices to have poor battery life and I'll be lucky if i will still have 30% by 7pm with my M5, Z5 & XZ.
